We’re investing in new and existing sports facilities through the Mayor’s Sports Facilities Fund.
Mayor’s Sports Facilities Fund
What has the programme funded?
So far the programme has seen:
- over £8m invested across every London borough
- 104 projects funded – either new facilities or refurbishment/upgrade of existing facilities
- opportunities for more than 80,000 extra people to participate in sport each week .
The Mayor has recently announced a £1.5 million capital investment in artificial grass pitches to boost grassroots sports across London.
The funding will kick-start the first phase of a ground-breaking programme in London and ensure the capital is at the forefront of The Football Association’s five-year plan to improve grassroots facilities in England and reduce reliance on local authority subsidies.
